What should I send to daycare with my child?

What You Need at Daycare

When bringing your child to day care you want to make sure you don't forget anything. Their cubbies should be well stocked for any emergency. These are just a few things you might want to keep in their cubby:

1.A change of clothes
2.Extra diapers, wipes and rash cream (or underwear if they're potty trained)
4.A hat(seasonal-heavy with gloves in the winter, baseball cap the rest of the time)
5.A pair of socks (you'd be surprised how many they lose)
6.A favorite toy for naptime
7.A list of allergies and any other things the teachers need to know
8.Spare bottle/sippy cup with nipple and collar (if needed)
9.Make sure all emergency numbers are correct and updated. (place a spare set of the numbers in the child's cubby)
10.A picture of mom and dad (helps the child get through the day)
Don't forget that everything should be clearly labeled with your child's name.
